27 Αυγούστου 2019, Being Active When You Have Blood Lipid Disorders - ACSM
Do you want to feel better, sleep better and move better? Experts now say that any physical activity counts toward better health – even just a few minutes!
In fact, the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology recommend physical activity as an important lifestyle therapy for treating blood lipid disorders and reducing heart disease risk. The most commonly measured blood lipids are low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL or bad cholesterol), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL or good cholesterol) and triglycerides. The direct effects of exercise on these blood lipids can vary in a person because things such as diet, weight loss, genetics and medications also influence cholesterol and triglycerides. However routine physical activity can help raise HDL-C and lower LDL-C and triglycerides in many people.
